one can never have too many of these sweet things in the garden. ;-)
i've been nose deep in the garden for several weeks now just like the ladybug above. she may have been getting a drink from the dew drippy dill but i've been planting, weeding, creating path, etc .  . .   
 not much stitching getting done but who can blame me with all of these gorgeous sights just a few steps away?!?
soon enough it will be cold and the snow will be falling and then i'll have more time to stitch as well as show off  just how few stitches are currently making it into any projects.

in the meantime  there seems to be little time or patience for cropping out pesty flys or creating the perfect image ratio's. all of these shots are straight out of the camera so forgive the imperfections of the photography and my lack of stitch surprises and just enjoy the beauty of my garden please.
 this little green grasshopper seems much too pretty to be very damaging and so tiny . . .
i do think it may be getting bigger by nibbling on the leaves of my johnny jump-ups though . . .
my life and heart are FULL of garden gratitudes and i hope that yours are too.


  1. beautiful garden post! Love that little grasshopper -
    I was pulling weeds yesterday and a snake slithered out to say hello - eeeeek

  2. What is it about pulling weeds and watching your garden grow that is so therapeutic!

  3. Love little ladybugs!

  4. Hello dear Libby Q! Oh, I love your garden and I am enjoying all the life it exhibits! We've had blue dragon flies around for a while. They are gorgeous!
    I ate a carrot from my garden today and yesterday I picked a basket of cucumbers! Pickles!
    I am so glad you are enjoying your summer to the fullest extent! Sending love your way!

  5. My favorite is the ladybugs. Isn't is interesting how most of us don't particularly like insects/bugs, but almost everyone loves ladybugs?

  6. Beautiful images! Your garden work has obviously paid off. Enjoy!

  7. No need for cropping! Isn't dill fabulous?!? I love seeing those ladybugs - very few of them around here. Some genius introduced stinkbugs to reduce the ladybugs and now our area has a stinkbug infestation. Truly boggles the mind! Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden!


i love knowing what your thoughts are and knowing that you've paid a visit if you have the time to drop a line or two.

i attempt to answer all comments and/or questions. if this is important to you make sure you are not set on no reply which leaves me no way to get back to you.
